From Simple Dimmers to Smart Home Lighting

Lutron Lighting Solutions Set the Standard

From Simple Dimmers to Smart Home Lighting

If you walk into the average home, you may see a dimmer in a dining room or family room.  Interestingly enough, you may not see one in a bath or some other place where it would be beneficial as a way to conserve energy or set a mood.  In upper-end homes, you are more likely to see dimmers employed, as lighting is more complicated and there may be different banks of lights in a given area.

You may be wondering why we're talking about dimmers when we often talk about smart home lighting on these pages.  Let's call the simple dimmer the gateway drug to intelligent lighting.  Unlike other gateway drugs, this one has very positive effects and no negatives.

Dimmers help to save energy by enabling you to adjust light levels.  They can help set the right ambiance or act as a nightlight to keep you from stumbling in a dark hallway or room.  They can shine the right amount of light on a feature of a room or artwork. 

When it comes to lighting switches and controls, one company has long led the way.  We partner with Lutron for lighting solutions because they have been doing it for over 50 years, and their products scale from simple dimmers to whole-building solutions for skyscrapers. Let’s take a closer look at how Lutron can make your home lighting smarter in Minneapolis.

What Security Do You Need to Protect Your Business?

A Checklist for Evaluating Solutions

What Security Do You Need to Protect Your Business?

Your business has valuable assets. Whether it’s inventory or parts and finished products, intellectual property, machinery and equipment, computers, or anything else, you want to ensure your assets are protected. The loss of any of these things can cause significant disruption, loss of revenue, time, and competitive advantage, so you want to ensure you have adequate safeguards in place to protect your enterprise.

The amount of security you need for your business may vary based on what it is. A retail shop has different needs from a restaurant, and a manufacturing company will have quite different requirements than a services company. But all businesses have common needs, and the extent to which you may need one over another, or the degree to which one is more important, will depend on your concerns and your specific business.

Let’s break down some of the types of protection you might need so you will have a better sense of how to choose the right business security solution for your needs in Woodbury, MN.
